Product Information

New and improved Carbon-Z Cub RC Plane

The original E-flite Carbon-Z Cub was ground-breaking and created a new category for large-scale, 6S electric-powered models. Based on a platform that was well known for legendary versatility, it's lightweight and exceptionally strong, composite-reinforced and hollow-core design was mostly factory-finished and assembled so it was easier for more pilots to go "BIG" than ever before. The E-flite Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m is an updated and greatly refined version of that original model, equipped with a host of new features for even better flight performance, and greater operational convenience so you can enjoy a giant-scale flying experience unlike any other.

E-flite Carbon-Z Cub SS RC Plane

An updated wing design with drooped tips adds wing and aileron area for significantly improved slow speed handling, performance and control. The modified flap design allows them to travel both ways for full-span aileron and other mixing options, and thumbscrews make it easier to install and remove the two-piece wing without tools.

The updated power system features a motor with an improved design that includes an additional bearing, along with a propeller that's moulded from material that better maintains balance and stiffness, to deliver smoother and more reliable performance. Plus the ESC is now equipped with an IC5 connector, which is also compatible with EC5 connectors, for better and more reliable power delivery.

The articulated and shock-absorbing landing gear is now equipped with even larger oversized tundra-style wheels with softer tyres which offer better ground handling that better soaks up the bumps of rough surfaces. The push-button release, top mount hatch offers convenient access to the battery compartment – which now holds a quick-release, multi-position battery mounting tray that fits 4S to 6S 3200–7000mAh batteries. This makes for easy CG adjustment with different batteries. The composite-reinforced, hollow-core airframe arrives mostly factory-finished and assembled, and the installed digital, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages deliver fast and accurate control.

Add a float set

An optional float set (EFLA5600) that includes a servo and functional water rudder, plus a new mounting/strut set (EFL12419) that attaches with a more secure rear mount and cross braces, is available separately. Installation is really simple, and you have the option to switch between floats and wheels in minutes.
